  • Catalogue Essay

    Every year Piaget celebrates the Chinese New Year with its Art & Excellence collection, which is designed to demonstrate the fine artistry and craftsmanship by the company. To pay tribute to the cultures of Asia, Piaget has launched a new Altiplano model featuring a cloisonné dial. In 2012, the Year of the Dragon, Piaget created a diamond-set wristwatch featuring a magnificent interpretation of the legendary creature amidst swirling crested waves, exquisitely painted by world renowned enameller, Anita Porchet and her team. As Suzanne Rohr’s protégé, Prochet creates and paints these intriguing crafts on commission by international watch brands including Vacheron Constantin, Patek Philippe and Jaquet Droz. The present watch is set with 78 diamonds weighing 0.71 carats and numbered 38 of a limited edition of 38 pieces only. Offered in pristine condition, the watch is complete with certificate and fitted presentation box.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1874

    Creativity, audacity and know-how are the values that gave Piaget its international reputation and allowed the brand to distinguish itself in the world of fine watchmaking and precision. Founder Georges Edouard Piaget established the company in 1874 and manufactured watch movements. While Piaget is famously recognized today for their elaborate wristwatch and bangle designs, they also mastered the marriage of their high-quality, in-house-produced wristwatches and stunning pieces of jewelry.

    Collectors consider the 1970s as Piaget's era of superb creativity and unbounded designs. During this highly creative period, the brand designed an impressive range of cuff and bracelet watches carved in gold and adorned with exotic hard stones. Admired by most as not only jewelry but also true works of art, the firm's hard stone dial watches remain the most iconic, recognizable and desirable among collectors.
